Is the connector supply issue only for the 800? Or are they also refusing the 6xx series?

Electronics guys... we have our plusses and minuses. With advent of digital everything, we're being phased out

There are already other sources for the 2 pin connectors.

I'm not talking about what happened between you and I -- otherwise the number certainly wouldn't have been 3. 
   I'm talking about Audio-gd's.

Not sure Steve.  I'll see if I can find out.

Thanks, Kevin!

I know what you were talking about. I was just engaging in a little self-deprecating humor is all.

Back on topic...I pulled the trigger on one of Steve's Q cables and am really looking forward to trying it out.
I ordered a balanced cable and a single end adapter (since I have no balanced amps at the moment).
Now I need to see what kind of balanced amp goes well with the LCD-2s (or wait until Schiit Audio releases one).

Does anyone have the Whiplash TWag V2 for the LCD-2.  I'm thinking of getting a 2nd cable (my current cable is ALO copper/silver round chainmail balanced which I really like).  The reason for getting a 2nd cable is for a 2nd amp.  I'm using the ALO balanced cable with my WA22 and want a shorter SE cable for my HA-160D.  Looking for some suggestions and also thoughts on the Whiplash specifically.

Would it be cheaper to get ALO to make you an XLR-to-TRS adapter out of the same cable?

I'm really looking into getting another cable.  Not a big fan of adapters and having a bunch of extra cable.

I can say that I have had the Q-Audio cable for a few days.  And what a cable, ergonomically it is the best cable, perhaps the only thing I might ask for is where the L and R split off I have always had a preference to have a block there, a small carribean rosewood circle with Q etched in, or maybe a miniature LCD-2 grille, LoL.  Sound wise I like this better that any of my silver cables.  I like it so much I am considering upgrading my interconnects to Q's.

Same here, Wedge.  The Q is absolutely for sure the best aftermarket cable I have tried ergonomically - very light and flexible.  And In my comparisons so far to the Norse Audio, which I like very much too, the Q  cable seems to have a little more transparency without being even one tiny bit bright or edgy.  I'm very impressed with it so far.
